Update: Plant has moved to 8 Buiten Street

Plant is the latest addition to Cape Town’s trendy lunch (and breakfast) scene and features a menu that will have any vegetarian, vegan or veggie lover drooling. The menu items are a far cry from the stock standard cheese and tomato combos you’ll find at most Cape Town cafes.

Here are a few items off the menu that I can’t wait to devour – and best of all, they deliver in the city bowl!  There are also loads of nutritious smoothies.

  • Breakfast Wrap

A flavourful tofu scramble fried up with caramelised onions, quinoa and our home-smoked tempeh bacon in a wrap and sealed with our very own cream cheese. Contains nuts. Add Spicy Mayo side.


Double Salad – Get one of each or a double portion of your favourite salad.

Salad and ½ a Ciabatta – One portion of your choice of salad and a half portion of the Eggless Egg Salad Sandwich or Plant Sandwich.

Salad in a Wrap – Choose your favourite salad to fill your wrap to go.

Soup & Salad – Soup and salad combo.

Soup & ½ a Ciabatta – Soup and ciabatta combo.

  • Buddha Box

Asian style marinated tofu, encrusted in sesame seeds on a bed of brown rice, topped with peanut-miso gravy. Served with a side of seasonal greens and ginger-miso dressing. Gluten-free. Contains sesame seeds. Contains nuts.

  • Spicy Mushroom Shushi

Six pieces of teriyaki wild mushroom mix, avocado and sprouts. Gluten-free.

  • Florentines

A traditional Italian biscuit made by setting toasted flaked almonds in caramel and drizzled with melted chocolate. Gluten free. Contains nuts.

Tried their cheese melt sandwich on Saturday. Delicious, and nicely-priced too. Great vibe, great service with a smile. I Definitely plan on eventually trying everything on the menu 😉 Very happy to see a café-style vegan eatery like this, and I look forward to seeing more…

Yum… I live just around the corner and work nearby too, so I am definitely going to work my way through the menu. Popped in on Saturday morning for a breakfast smoothie – it was perfect for a summer’s day, and packed with healthy stuff.
